Auto-update vs. manual update in Windows

Hi,
There is a fix re: bits when I update manually then run compatibility.
It works fine if I leave it on auto and run compatibility.
Is this a common occurrence? It appears that you cannot have both at the same time. Manually running it more often is better than automatically doing it less often, but I'm not sure if it disables automatic which likely does.
The firewall and protection history could also be improved; does anyone agree?

It's not really clear what you're asking. Please clarify.

If you are talking about Windows Updates, it scans for updates once per day with additional triggers for scanning for needed updates. There is not a need to run it more frequently since Windows updates in most cases are only released the second Tuesday of the month unless there is some extremely critical patch that is under active exploit.
